Olof Mellberg Wins Top Villa Award

Great news for Olof Mellberg, in the Vital Villa end of season awards (full results to be announced next week - hopefully you can contain your excitement until then) as he becomes the first winner of a very coveted prize.

So, congratulations to Olof, who has won:

The Best Beard At Aston Villa Award.

The award, in its inaugural year, was set up to ensure that Olof Mellberg won something whilst at Villa. The prize is a gold plated shaving gel tin just in-case the beard gets itchy in the summer.

Olof Mellberg wasn't available for comment and didn't say: 'I'm very honoured, this has fulfilled many of my Aston Villa dreams, I came here to win things and now feel this confirms I was right to move to Villa Park'.

Olof Mellberg was the runaway winner as 87% voted for Mellberg - fearsome warrior beard.

5% voted for Juan Pablo Angel and his George Michael impression.

4% for Liam Ridgewell's bum fluff and .........STOP SNIGGERING AT THE BACK, this is serious reporting for goodness sake......

4% voted for Milan Baros - or did he just miss that bit when shaving?

the picture was taken shortly after the last time he shaved, he vowed never to go near a razor again apparently.

Congratulations Olof, you deserve it, after all you are not going to win anything else while playing for the Villa at the present time.

funny comment about the picture by the way, it is him walking off the pitch with his tail between his legs after playing crap he's better with the beard, everytime he shaves he drops an absolute stinker on the pitch, i dread seeing our captain clean shaven beards = power.........ask jesus! maybe DOL should grow a one

It should be compulsory for all of them to remain unshaven until they win two games on the bounce.... I reckon the beard award would be very competitive then

I reckon they shouldn't allow any of our players to shave until they win 3 games in a row.
